The Citizens for a Pesticide-Free Castlegar and Area are asking the Castlegar City Council to consider an immediate moratorium on chemical pesticides in city-managed playing fields, parks and common areas. The group is also requesting that the City begin work on a city-wide ban such as has been enacted in Nelson, Revelstoke, and 40 other BC communities.
If you are interested in supporting this effort, please join the Facebook group:
At the facebook group, you'll find petitions that you can print out for Castlegar area residents to sign. The group will go before Council next Monday June 17, so don't delay!
